"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen


Finds for Fridays: July 8


Finds for Fridays is my way of sharing some of the wonderful blogs posts I read each week. I am currently following close to 100 blogs and at least scan them as much as I can.  Each week, I'll note and "set aside" some posts that especially speak to me for whatever reason. And each Friday that I am able, I'll share them with you. I hope you'll stop by and read the posts, and maybe even follow the blogs if you aren't already. A win-win, right?

And here they are!

Don't Mess With Children by Joy Bach at Life Moments (some great laughs)

Writing Rules by Rachel Hauck at Rachelle Gardner's blog (guest post - about craft "stuff" every writer should know)

Writing When It Hurts by Pepper Basham at The Writers Alley (about emotional writing and "bad stuff")

I've Had Enough by Lori McMath at All You Have To Give (about where to go when you're fed up)

You Have To Hook Us by Scott Eagan at Babbles from Scott Eagan (about the need for that great first chapter)

The Church Should Not Be a Shark Tank By Nikki Turner at In Truer Ink (about judgmental Christians)

Some wonderful stuff this week. Enjoy/learn from/be blessed by these posts!
